The Walt Disney Company melder at de har rundet 137 millioner betalende abonnenter på tværs af sine streamingtjenester. Det overgår tidligere prognoser og det nye mål for betalende abonnenter er 300-350 millioner i 2024. De 137 millioner er et samlet tal for alle Disney’s tjenester der også omfatter Hulu og ESPN i USA. Det specifikke tal for Disney+ er 86.8 millioner abonnenter.
Den kommende vækst skal ikke mindst ske med en stor investering i mere indhold. Derfor annoncerer man samtidigt et mål om mere end 100 nye titler hvert år på Disney+ fordelt på indhold fra Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars og National Geographic.
Star lanceres allerede i februar – Disney+ prisen stiger
Disney lancerer endnu et streamingtilbud med navnet Star på det europæiske marked 23. februar 2021 som en fuldt integreret del af Disney+, med et bredt udvalg af underholdning fra virksomhedens anerkendte tv- og filmstudier, der vil fordoble indholdet på tjenesten. Star indholdet bliver en del af Disney+ og altså ikke en selvstændig tjeneste.
Star har titler fra FX, som blandt andet står bag serier som Atlanta, Sons of Anarchy og American Horror Story og 20th Century Studios, som har produceret blandt andet Alien, Die Hard, Le Mans 66, Gone Girl og mange flere, med sig i bagkataloget. Helt præcist hvilke titler, der følger med i Star sektionen hos Disney+, må vi vente lidt på at få at vide.
Samtidig med integrationen af Star bliver Disney+ dyrere. Prisen stiger med 20 kr/md. til 79 kr/md. Et årligt abonnement stiger fra 589 kroner til 790 kroner. Har du allerede betalt for et år forud, så beholder du nuværende pris indtil dit abonnement udløber. Du kan også nå at bestille et års abonnement og få den gamle pris i et år frem.
